Galactic News: Starport Status Update

15 AUG 3303

This report presents the latest data on starports experiencing technical issues as a result of Unknown-Artefact related interference.

The following starports are currently closed:

Gehry Gateway, Checha

Galactic News: Alliance Defends Research Initiative

15 AUG 3303

The Alliance has been criticised for its recent appeal for Thargoid data, which began only days after a joint-superpower initiative was established to study the Thargoids.

A number of independent factions, including the Federal Republican Command, have censured the Alliance for its apparently contradictory stance.

A spokesperson for the Alliance was quick to respond:

“Aegis emerged from a spirit of unity, so we can understand why an independent initiative could be seen as undermining that philosophy. The simple truth is that it takes a long time to plan a campaign of this sort, and in this case our preparations began long before Aegis was established. Cancelling the campaign would have had dire repercussions for our partners, the Kaushpoos Pro-Alliance Union, to whom we have a contractual obligation. Rest assured that the instruments we plan to develop will be made available to Aegis, to which the Alliance is fully committed.”

Galactic News: Weekly Security Report

15 AUG 3303

This report presents the latest data on the security status of the galaxy’s minor factions.

Here are the latest factions to experience a lockdown:

Brotherhood of LP 98-132

Green Party of Lung

Alliance of HIP 13269

Crimson Major Incorporated

Republic Party of Thraskias

Revolutionary Kanean Resistance

HIP 24655 allied

Monarchy of HIP 24655

Dhak Union Party

Opontani Nationals

When a faction experiences a lockdown, the security rating of the system it controls temporarily increases and the system’s wealth temporarily decreases. Bounty hunting activity can shorten the lockdown period.

Here are the latest factions to experience civil unrest:

Apoyota Domain

Ngadjal Citizens' Forum

Hecate Creative Industries

Mafia of Chacobog

Revolutionary Kanean Resistance

HIP 29241 Conservatives

Traditional Hehe Flag

NLTT 47967 Purple Brotherhood

Phra Indji Crimson Mob

Auta Isuang Blue Hand Gang

Civil unrest is the result of illegal activity. When a faction is affected by civil unrest, the standard of living in the system it controls temporarily decreases, as does the system’s wealth. Combat missions and activities can bring civil unrest to an end.

Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

14 AUG 3303

This report presents the latest data on the economic health of the galaxy’s minor factions.

Here are the latest factions to experience an economic boom:

Order of Ethgreze

Green Party of HIP 103138

Union of Wolf 359 Labour

GCRV 4654 State Interstellar

Coquim Industry

Opila Ltd

Chamunda Crimson Gang

Kini Drug Empire

Brani Federal Holdings

AG+21 1754 Citizen Party

Boom is usually the result of consistent trade profit and completed trade contracts. When a faction experiences a boom, the wealth of the system it controls temporarily increases and trade missions completed in the system have double the effect on influence. The faction’s influence may also increase. Booms typically last until they naturally expire.

Here are the latest factions to experience an economic bust:

LHS 3479 Interstellar

Morgor Crimson Pirates

BD-13 2439 Comms Systems

LHS 2884 Dominion

Lambda Hydri Industry

People's LFT 551 League

LHS 3006 Blue Brotherhood

Partnership of Alpha Centauri

Earls of Dahan

The Order of Justice

When a faction experiences a bust, the wealth of the system it controls is temporarily reduced and the faction’s influence is temporarily diminished. Trade actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust typically has to run its course before ending.

Galactic News: Sirius Corporation Enters Merope

12 AUG 3303

A number of media outlets have reported that the Sirius Corporation has entered the Merope system, establishing two new outposts.

Although the mega-corporation has asserted that the outposts will support mining operations in the region, commentators have speculated that Sirius is positioning itself to take control of the system’s barnacles.

Daxton Sung of the Imperial Herald commented:

“Right now, the Federation controls Merope. But Sirius is playing the long game. They’ve positioned themselves close to the barnacles so that if the Federation pulls out of the system, they can swoop in and start hoovering up meta-alloys.”

The new outposts will no doubt be a boon to independent pilots in Merope, giving them access to a wide range of services.

Galactic News: Order Restored in Hehe

11 AUG 3303

Authorities in the Hehe system have reported that the conflict between Hehe Federal Interstellar and Hehe Camorra has ended in a victory for Hehe Federal Interstellar .

Both factions issued calls for support, promising generous rewards to pilots who lent their aid, but ultimately it was Hehe Federal Interstellar that emerged victorious. Hehe Camorra has now withdrawn its forces from the system.

As the last Hehe Camorra ships left the field of battle, a representative of Hehe Federal Interstellar released a statement:

“The brave pilots who rallied to our cause have our everlasting gratitude. And to the people of Hehe, I say this: we’re going to do everything in our power to ensure a peaceful and prosperous future for our system.”

Community Goal: Alliance Research Initiative

11 AUG 3303

The Alliance has launched a new research initiative designed to enhance human understanding of the Thargoids. The primary aim of the initiative is to build a range of state-of-the-art instruments expressly designed to analyse Thargoid material.

To this end, the Alliance has placed an open order for unknown ship signatures, unknown organic circuitry and unknown technology components. The Kaushpoos Pro-Alliance Union has been authorised to oversee the campaign, and has promised to reward pilots who deliver the requested resources to Neville Horizons in the Kaushpoos system. The organisation has also placed a kill order on all ships on its wanted list, to ensure that those delivering resources to Neville Horizons can do so safely.

In a statement, an Alliance spokesperson said:

“Although humanity has had prior contact with the Thargoids, our knowledge remains limited. It is essential that we expand our understanding. We therefore intend to build a range of specialised tools and analytic instruments with which to study Thargoid material.”

The campaign begins on the 10th of August 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.
